After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerners emails by the end of this week.
Gowdy spoke with Fox News Greta van Susteren about Wednesdays hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinens claim that responding to the Oversight committees subpoena for Lerners emails could take years.
All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner Im not talking about private taxpayer information. Thats 6103, thats confidential, thats a separate conversation, he said.
Just emails like the one she sent celebrating a Democratic victory in a special election, calling on the FEC to save the day overtly political, nothing to do with her job well just settle for those! the congressman said. And I even said just give me the ones from January 2010!

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
No threats, JUST DO IT !
Cool. But didn’t they hold Holder in Contempt too? Like he’s really shaking.
Trey Gowdy is the man.
Well, maybe. But John Boehner, Eric Cantor, the committee chairman and the rest of the House leadership are a bunch of wussies who are too cowardly to hold contemptible Obama creatures in contempt.
Yeah, it’s about time that some congress critter does what Issa should’a been doin’ for the last four years.
Yeah, uh we uh tried to get her emails off of her computer but it had a rootkit virus that infected the whole hard drive and it won’t uh boot now...
He talks a lot.
Want on or off this ping list? Just drop me a FReep mail.
Trey Gowdy is all talk.
And he’s an amnesty buddy.
Should have done this way back. Nothings getting done. A lot of threats. Those and a dollar will get you a milky way bar at CVS.
Except on illegal aliens, where he disgraces himself.
Actions talk, BS walks.
Indeed Trey Gowdy is a genuine stalwart for law and ethics. But sadly, contempt or other threats mean nothing to the thugs of the IRS. They have a lawless president behind them and know that no matter how bad it gets legally, they will be taken care of.
Hold him in contempt?
What does that actually mean?
What does he mean by “hold”?
Is he going to hug him?
Give Em a date if not met,
Stop threatening, just do it !
As bad as O and his red line.
Obama is Law-Less because Republican "leaders" are BALL-LESS!!
Clean up your talk....this is not DU.
Unless The House IMPRISONS Lerner finding her in Contempt will not matter at all, just like with Holder.
The Democrats are scofflaws and the Republican House are blustering, cowering, and ineffectual. In other words: worthless. That has to end TODAY.
The House MUST use its inherent power to imprison this contumacious witness.
Mr. Gowdy..... MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!! Get ‘er done!
It’s time to cowboy up.
I keep hearing threats but don't see any action.
We’ll see. Lots of us thought Issa was the man, too, about 47 hearings ago.
Well, it’s the end of the week. Any news from Gowdy on this?
Nope. No IRS news yet.
